EDU68880A - Clinical Practice III: K-12 Special Education (Student Teachers)

(1.5 units)
Student Teachers are placed in K-12 classrooms and are assigned a veteran, successful Special Education teacher who serves as their District-employed Support Provider and mentors the Student Teacher in all the day-to-day functions of being a Special Education teacher. The process of learning is gradual with the student teacher by first observing, then teaching one-to-one, next small groups, then the entire class for part of the day, and eventually the student teacher will be taking over all of the day-to-day duties of a contracted teacher-of-record. Candidates should plan on completely devoting themselves during this time to be successful in their student teaching. Candidates are to remain in their Clinical Practice placement throughout the entire contracted hours of employment established by their employment contract for the employed teachers in the school.
Prerequisites: EDU68910A, EDU68910B
